This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

Forgot password for Acer TravelMate 240


RTC battery inside somewhere to keep the password of your computer.

Try to find the RTC battery (acer almost used cr1220 ) and take it off from socket wait 10 seconds and put it back again .

You need to disassemble the unit ~take the keyboard and heatsink plate off ~you will see the RTC battery.

You may type cr1220 to search the picture of RTC battery on line easy.

Good luck.

Mother Board CD for ACER Travelmate 240


Unfortunately the Travelmate doesn't come with any other way to format the computer to factory settings. However you do have 2 options. The first is to contact Acer who still provide OS discs for your laptop (They will charge you $49.95 including shipping). The second is to use a free Operating System such as Linux. I recommend Ubuntu www.ubuntu.org as it is very easy to use, has a great community support group and you can try by using a Live CD before formatting.
